Google Ngram Viewer

Occasionally you come across a resource that is just incredible. Something unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

Google’s Ngram Viewer  is a website that I can just get absolutely lost in.

Over 20 Million books have been digitised and can then be searched by word frequency from 1800 all the way up to 2008.

I give a very quick video rundown on just some of the features of Google Ngram Viewer here.


I’m really excited about the potential for this in education. But I’m also at a bit of a loss as to how I can get students engaging with it in a rich task. Please turn your mind towards it and comment below on how we can use this in the classroom.

Here’s one more graph I thought was interesting.
